Moodys digs into family dysfunction for Xmas
The Moodys | Wednesday, Dec. 4, 9 p.m., Fox
Welcoming your adult children home for the holidays sounds dreamy for longtime Chicago married couple Sean (Denis Leary) and Ann Moody (Elizabeth Perkins). Then they start showing up. Dan Moody (Francois Arnaud), the baby of the family, shows up unaccompanied by his girlfriend. Bridget Moody (Chelsea Frei) shows up without a suitcase in hand after fighting with her husband. Eldest child Sean Jr. (Jay Baruchel) never left home, and that’s becoming a drag for his parents. Throw in a cousin, a thwarted romance or two and some medical surprises, and you have an imperfect Christmas — the only kind this family seems capable of having.
Elizabeth Perkins, who previously played Jackie O’Neill on HBO’s “Sharp Objects,” spoke to The Post from LA, where she was besieged by allergies.
